    Red cabbage rocks! Slaw is a funny word..but this pick is scrumptious!! I really like the opals w/ the violet/purple.

    The word slaw does not sound like a good food at all…it sounds like a mess!!!

    Gorgeous pick, Frida! Your salad sounds yummy. The more I read (hear in my head) the word “slaw” the funnier it sounds. :)

    You’re making me hungry. Red cabbage is great, but I once tried to cook it, and it turned blue. Not appetizing at all!

    Beautiful elements in this. The amethyst gunmetal beads are some of my favorites.

    I have had red cabbage salad (slaw :) ) with Granny Smith apples and a reduced apple juice dressing (the sweet part). YUM! Toss in some walnuts or better yet some sugared walnuts and you are in heaven. :) Frida, my maternal grandmother Agnes(the original Aggie!!!)was born in America to Swedish parents who had just immigrated. Her sisters were born in Sweden and that’s where she was conceived. Does that give her dual citizenship? :) Her parents were Ole and Brita Peterson. Her mom died shortly after she was born. The older girls went to live with relatives but she was put up for adoption. A German family adopted her but kept her contacts so she could find her sisters later. She managed one trip to Sweden to meet relatives and was planning a second trip when she died. I’m really glad she got to go that one time because it meant so much to her.

    Cabbage… cabbage and potatoes were the basic food groups in the Ukraine where my grandparents came from. I love cabbage, I love slaw but have never had the red slaw you guys describe above with apples, etc. – I would love to try that. ‘

    I’m guessing my husband’s family were of Swedish descent given the name “Henson.” But nobody has done any research on the family.

    You are still making veggie stew I see. Good – we need lots of veggies. Cabbage is so good for you.

    Wow, this cabbage pick is the most tasteful!

    Elis Mom says:

    I love this pick, Frida! I think raw red cabbage is the way to go, as if you cook it, everything turns purple!

    I like slaw, too! Always thought it was a funny word, and wonder where it came from!

    Great pick Frida-beautiful colors-I love cabbage!

  18. Crazy Beader
    Crazy Beader says:

    Hey, I love your pick, too, Frida. Everyone is commenting on the word “slaw”. The term for cabbage salad in German is “kohl salat” and pronounced in English (very fast) it has become “cole slaw” with the final “t” from German being dropped.

  19. Frida
    Frida says:

    Thank you all :D

    Paula thats interesting! In Swe it’s Kål Sallad.

    Recipe: shredd cabbage (green or red) and apple and mix.

    Use sour cream/milk or cream mix some with some apple cider vinegar.

    Salt n peppa.

    One can add raisin or cucumber pickles or what one think will be good with it. :D
